Knights of Columbus bring Nativity to State House lawn

On Sunday, January 2, 2022 from 1-3 pm, a group from the Knights of Columbus will be commemorating the feast of Christmas and honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ, with a Nativity scene, prayer and Christmas hymns.

“We will be praying for the State of Vermont and our government leaders, as well as continuing the Christmas celebration – a time when we thank God, the Creator, who deigned to dwell among us in time and on this earth, to suffer, die and rise again, that we might achieve Salvation and eternal life,” organizer Tom Kelly said.

A local chapter of the Knights, Council No. 399, St. Monica Church, Barre, is sponsoring the event which is part of a national effort spearheaded by the Knights to bring Nativity scenes to the various statehouse grounds throughout the United States.

Some 40 of the 50 states have participated. All members of the public are welcome.

  1. But, but, but that just isn’t inclusive with equity. other faiths, like the religion of love, Islam, are excluded. Quran:Chapter 9, Verse 30
    And the Jews say: ‘Uzair (Ezra) is the son
    of Allah, and the Christians say: Messiah
    is the son of Allah. That is their saying
    with their mouths, resembling the saying
    of those who disbelieved aforetime.
    Allah’s curse be on them, how they are deluded.
    Islam should be taught in every American school with CRT and BLM.

    • Of course, CHRISTmas is a CHRISTian holiday, that is: a Holy Day in these United States. It is a National Holiday as Christians founded this nation & Christianity is the world’s largest religion – NOT Islam. If those Americans who can’t deal with reality (and there appear to be more & more every minute) or the aforementioned facts, I’d suggest they move to the Middle East & get a nice hut in Iraq where they can enjoy the freedoms & joys of Islam personally.

      Just in case, in the event you go & you do still dig Jethro Tull though, I’d recommend not attempting to listen – music is largely banned as is dancing – and you don’t want to wind up beheaded or anything!

  2. Praise be to Jehovah God and our Savior Jesus Christ! We pray for the state of Vermont, our leaders and our Statehouse. God bless America!
